Hello all and welcome to my first eBay watch report.
As usual, There have been some interesting auctions on eBay recently. One which caught my eye was a stunning complete coffee set in Fantasia 3388 being sold by “catstealer” a seller from York in England. Although there was only one bid on this, the set sold for £1700. There would have been at least 2 bids, but the starting price had one nought too many for a person of my slender means, regretfully (all donations in plain brown envelopes, please).
Another interesting item was a charming candle holder in the Carre 3659 being sold by “harwil” a seller from Calgary, in Canada. This attracted 3 bids and sold for £77.13 (US $123.50). I was going to bid on this, but completely forgot when the auction was ending. Ooops, sorry about that, “harwil”. I will try harder next time.
By way of emphasising how broad a church Carlton Ware is, I spotted a set of 3 Guinness wall plaques graduated in size from 6½” to 10″ and said to be in “super condition”, which were auctioned by “stirlingsales-19”, a seller who hails from the “sunny south” of England – I do like a person with an optimistic outlook on life, don’t you? After a hard fought battle involving 21 bids by 8 different bidders the set eventually sold for £137.00.
Finally, my eye was also drawn to a slender 7″ tall Ginger Jar in Feathertailed Bird & Flower 3355 being sold by “jeepstar09” a seller from the Wirral, in England. This little beauty created an epic battle and eventually amassed an astonishing 33 bids and finished at £335.00.
